Jigs to bring?

Good Morning Down Under, I will be visiting Bunbury W.A. the end of Feb. and am interested on finding out as much as I can before hand to know what to bring with me, Anyone interested in posting images of popular jigs used for your coastal and inshore fisheries? Would like to try and match them up with what I have available here in the states. Any info would be greatly appreciated, hope to cover as much water as possible, beach, coastal, inshore and offshore if I can make the contacts. Thanks HJG

The most common ones are the taikabura jigs (I think they might call them butterfly jigs in the states?). A few people have used the knife jigs to success, but most people just use bait.

Theres lots of different lures you can use for casting though if your terminology for a jig is different to ours.

Ah you're right. I was getting the lucanus and the butterfly jigs mixed up in my head while typing. Was thinking it was the "lucanus butterfly jigs" instead of "shimano lucanus and butterfly jigs" :p.

Butterfly jigs

 Thanks for the replies mates, what we call a butterfly jigs in the states have a loose single hook on a short leader off the nose Shamano has a line of them. Do you have Yo-Zuri products in WA? holkk I condider a jig to be cast solid metal, can be cast an retrieved but mostly bounced off the bottom or "Jigged" up and down in the water colum. Plugs or stick bait/ crank baits were origenally made of wood but now mostly cast resins, made for topwater , diving or sinking. may want to check these out. HJG

Same definition to us, but it can vary, so good to check so you know you're on the same page. We call those type of hook setup an assist hook, but you probably have the same terminology.

Definately get stickbaits and yo-zuri stuff but I havent seen the the one in the above link. Crankbaits isnt a very used term here though :p.
